Liberty Red, L'Avenue and Sbraase all broke their maidens in low-grade all-weather contests and Jason Tate complicates matters by fielding the latter pair here. However, it's Ed Dunlop's charge who makes greatest appeal of the trio, having posted three decent efforts in turf maidens last term. He seems sure to go close with Lovelocks and Al Busayyir also expected to improve on their juvenile promise. The vote is awarded to the Godolphin representative though in the shape of SOLIDARITY. The Dubawi gelding lived up to his name with three strong efforts following his debut on varying ground types and looks nicely treated for this reappearance.
